Career Coaching & Retirement Coaching

Career Coaching Services - Retirement Coaching Services

You deserve to live your dream life!

Let’s collaborate to build the career – and life – of your dreams!

An Executive Coach, Resume Writer, and Branding Strategist, I’m an expert at helping top performers and rising stars identify their skills, passions, and values – and brainstorm ways to weave them together in a way that brings purpose, fulfillment, and enjoyment!

Even if you’ve felt stuck or unable to identify your dream career (and life), I can help you to gain clarity.

 

What sets our career coaching services apart:

Accelerated Process: I use sophisticated assessment tools available to fewer than 100 elite coaches and have undergone extensive training. Therefore, my clients discover the correct path forward within 4-8 sessions, instead of the typical 3 to 6-month program other coaches offer, and for an investment that is often 75% less than longer programs.

Holistic View: When determining the correct next path, I take into consideration your dreams, passions, values, traits, competencies, and restraints.

Comprehensive: We use sophisticated assessments and proprietary exercises to help you gain clarity quickly.

Do you find yourself saying:

  • I’ve never “discovered” my passion and purpose in life, and I’d like to finally figure that out.
  • I feel like something is missing in my career – and wonder if there is something else for which I’d be a better fit.
  • I’m early on in my career and I really don’t know what I am supposed to do with my life.

I work with:

  • Executives and professionals who feel like something is missing but just can’t put their finger on it.
  • Career Pivoters who want to leverage their skills and experiences to find a new role or industry that builds upon past successes, and brings greater fulfilment.
  • Rising stars who want to figure out the correct career roadmap, so they can select the right promotions and the best Master’s degree programs.
  • College students who want to choose the right Bachelor’s degree program – so they can be sure they are making a wise investment.

Career Coaching Case Studies

  • A 7-figure salaried Financial Services consultant was feeling burnt out. We examined his passions and skills and determined that he liked what he was doing, but he needed to offload things he did not enjoy to an assistant, so he could do more of what he what he was passionate about.
  • A physical therapist discovered that she really did not enjoy her work. She decided to pivot her career into a medical device salesperson. We created a strong career transition resume that highlighted her brand. We communicated why her PT mindset would enable her to stand out against her peers – she landed her new job quickly.
  • A client’s son was having a hard time selecting a college major. Through assessments, we discovered he loved music, sound, and computers. He decided to pursue a career in robotics – with a focus on sound engineering.
  • A marketing VP was re-entering the workforce after a 15-year sabbatical to raise a family. We explored which career would combine her previous experiences with her skills, values, and passions. Once selecting a new career, we created a resume that highlighted her value and conveyed her personal brand. We then developed a solid job search strategy to help her land her new role in record time.
  • A successful IT Cybersecurity Executive had a passion for rescuing retired racehorses. For networking, we developed a biography outlining her passions and experience surrounding horses. We then strategized how she could make a difference and developed a roadmap to transition to her new career over a 3-year period.
  • A market research director was feeling isolated from crunching numbers all day. Upon assessing her skill set, we determined she enjoyed branding, interviewing people, and writing. We brainstormed ideal roles and discovered she would make an ideal resume writer.

Career Coaching - Description of Services

Dream Life Discovery Package

This package is best if you are an executive or professional who wants a deeper understanding of yourself to identify ideal work settings and find the perfect role. You will work one-on-one with me for two 50-minute sessions:

Session #1 – WorkPlace Big 5 Trait Report: Understand 26 Personality Traits

You will first complete a 20-minute assessment on your own. Once we get the results, we will do a “deep dive” session, reviewing 26 personality traits to discover how you are wired. (As a comparison, Myers-Briggs only rates you on 4 personality dimensions!) We will also see how you rate on 50+ competencies. This comprehensive assessment not only helps define your ideal work setting, but also defines who you are in terms of relationships, leadership roles, communications, and more. You will learn more about yourself than you have ever before realized. It’s quite interesting and is an eye-opening experience that shows how your personality traits show up in almost everything you do!

Session #2 – Custom Session: Client Choice of Topics

This session is up to you, as you will choose the second topic, focusing on job likes/dislikes, passions, or other criteria (pick one topic). We will then connect the dots between our findings and how they impact your job preferences.

Dream Life Career Pivot Package

This package is best if you are an executive or a professional who wants to leverage your current skill set in new but related roles, as opposed to entirely new fields. A career pivot is less extreme than a full career transition. What we will do is identify skills you enjoy using, then brainstorm new roles in which you can use them. In a career pivot, you don’t have to start your career all over and can often transition into a role with a similar level of seniority. At the very least, you most likely won’t have to move to an entry-level or junior role.

For the career pivot package, I have developed my own powerful proprietary exercises, which allow you to narrow down best-fit potential career shifts in 75% less time than other coaches. Most of my clients can discern a new direction within 4 sessions, as opposed to the usual 3-month process offered by other career coaches. You will work one-on-one with me for three 50-minute sessions:

Session #1 – Present Clarity: Identify Top Skills, Likes, and Dislikes in Current Role

First, I will provide a proprietary exercise that you will complete on your own, in which you will identify likes and dislikes with your current role, as well as top skills that you enjoy using. We will then meet to discuss findings.

Session #2 – Future Clarity: Unlock Your Passions and Values to Clarify What Sets Your Heart on Fire

Next, I will provide a proprietary exercise in which you will identify your passions and what really inspires you. I will also provide an exercise on determining your values. These explorations are best completed in a setting free from distractions, where you can relax and really get in touch with your true inner self. The exercises can take from 1 to 3 hours and do not need to be completed all at once. We will then meet to discuss the results.

Session #3 – Brainstorm Ideal Roles that Align with Your Values, Passions, and Skills

In our third session together, we will brainstorm possible roles and industries that are a good fit for you. We will have an initial discussion on developing a plan to implement your career pivot, and if time permits, discuss needed resume changes at a high level.

Dream Life Career Transition Package 

This package is best for executives and professionals who are open to considering a wider range of roles and options and want to really understand their core traits and passions. It’s also a great option for those nearing retirement who want to transition to a retirement job that focuses on fun or personal meaning.

For the career transition package, I use powerful assessments that are only available to 100 coaches worldwide. I am therefore able to help you narrow down a new direction in 50% to 75% less time than other coaches. Most of my clients can discern a new direction within 8 sessions, instead of the usual 3 to 6 months it takes with other career coaches. You will work one-on-one with me for six 50-minute sessions and can add additional sessions as necessary:

Session #1 WorkPlace Big 5 Trait Report: Understand 26 Personality Traits

You will first complete the 20-minute assessment on your own. Once we get the results, we will do a “deep dive” session, reviewing 26 personality traits to discover how you are wired. (As a comparison, Myers-Briggs only rates you on 4 personality dimensions!) We will also see how you rate on 50+ competencies. This comprehensive assessment not only helps define your ideal work setting, but also defines who you are in terms of relationships, leadership roles, communications, and more. You will learn more about yourself than you have ever before realized. It’s quite interesting and is an eye-opening experience that shows how your personality traits show up in almost everything you do!

Session #2 WorkPlace Big 5 Career Guider Report: Review 8 Different Career Tests

The WorkPlace Big 5 Career Guider report is developed from the answers you gave for the WorkPlace Big 5 Trait report, so just 20 minutes of your time provides a wealth of information! Your initial answers will inform multiple career tests, including the ACT World of Work Map, the Holland Hexagon, Schein’s 8 Career Anchors, the 25 ACT Occupational Attribute Preferences, Gardner’s 8 Intelligences, 26 ACT Job Families, and Career Derailers.

What I love about this report is that it does not take any extra time on your part (just the 20 minutes from the WorkPlace Big 5 Trait Assessment), and it provides insights from 8 popular career tests.

Session #3 – Custom Session: Client Choice of Topics

Complete one test of your choice, including the Keirsey Temperament Sorter, Self-Directed Search, Strengths Finder, or other assessment tools, and we will connect the dots between our findings and how they impact your job preferences.

Session #4 – Present Clarity: Identify Top Skills and Likes and Dislikes with Current Role

I will provide a proprietary exercise that you will complete on your own, in which you will identify likes and dislikes with your current role, as well as top skills. We will then meet to discuss findings.

Session #5 Future Clarity: Unlock Your Passions and Values to Clarify What Sets Your Heart on Fire

I will provide a proprietary exercise in which you will identify your passions and what really inspires you. I will also provide an exercise on determining your values. These explorations are best completed in a setting free from distractions, where you can relax and really get in touch with your true inner self. The exercises can take from 1 to 3 hours and do not need to be completed all at once. We will then meet to discuss the results.

Session #6 - Brainstorm Ideal Roles That Align with Values, Passions, and Skills and create a strategic plan

We will continue to brainstorm your ideal roles and consider realistic constraints to narrow down the number of options.

As time allows, we can create a strategic plan to facilitate movement in your desired direction. As time allows, we can also conduct a resume and LinkedIn review. (More sessions can be added as needed, but usually clients are well on their way within six sessions.)

Value Proposition

Career services yield a return far greater than the initial investment.

Your time is valuable.  It makes sense to outsource some tasks in your life so you can have more time to enjoy yourself.  Especially those items that can use the expertise of a professional.

For those still working and looking for a job, the ROI will be in finding your new position faster and with less effort. For those who are unemployed, the ROI of working with us to accelerate your job search is tremendous.

If you’re thinking of going with your average resume and untested job search methods to “see how it goes”, consider the tremendous opportunity cost involved: think again.

Consider the cost of being unemployed.
